New E-Books from Springer

This week we added new books to our catalogue from the Springer scholarly publisher, all published in 2019.   These include:

  • 448 titles from the Earth and Environmental Sciences collection
  • 470 titles from the Political Science & International Studies collection
  • 435 titles from the Social Sciences collection

This brings the total number of Springer ebooks available through the library to over 19,000.  More titles will be added as they become available. 

Accessing an ebook through the library catalogue is easy.  When you perform a keyword search, the newest books are displayed at the top of your result list. 

  • Ebooks are identified as "E-BOOK" on the list. 
  • Click a title for a detailed description and access. 
  • Click the "Electronic Resource" button to access the ebook from the publisher's website.  (If there is more than one link, it's available from multiple sites - select your favourite.) 
  • A new tab/window opens in your browser, and your book is displayed.
